I’m definitely a mutt of numerous states: born in Colorado Springs, CO, went through grade school and HS in Michigan and came to California in 2001. My growing years have been predominantly in California, but I still consider myself a Michigander (Midwest boy) at heart. Taking advantage of California’s amazing weather and access, the ocean and golf courses are my best friends. Along with surfing and golf, I enjoy backcountry hiking, SUP-ing anywhere, and spending quality time with my family. Aside from these activities, my R&R is spent on vacation in Cabo with my Kindle and a Corona.
